Ng’s Stanford research group focuses on deep learning, which builds very large neural networks to learn from labeled and unlabeled data. Recently, a Stanford team (led by Adam Coates) built the world’s largest deep learning system with over 10 billion learnable parameters trained via back propagation using inexpensive GPU hardware. This work was presented in ICML 2013.
